—Because, I hardly ever look that cute. Most of the time I look like this:
If there was one thing Ichigo hadn’t been expecting Rangiku to commit to in manner of action in response to his simple compliment and apparently well-received words, it was that. For all its chastity, the flush that bled into his cheeks was hard to miss— and as distinct as it may be against otherwise sun-kissed flesh, shame was not an emotion he seeked to experience. After all, acquiring a kiss to the forehead from one as Rangiku is a rare compliment, right? “I-I— uh— y-yeah, no problem, Rangiku. You’re welcome.”
Step by step nail polish was glided on in smooth strokes. Finally and oh-so delicately she twisted the top close and held out her accomplishment. Shaking her hands gently before blowing tenderly on the nail she kept her hands out stretched as she peered up at the orangette. “Now they need to dry, so I’m not moving for the next fifteen to twenty minutes….or more. You’ll need to keep me company.” She teased.
—I’m not dead. Company Christmas Party was this weekend….fun times. Fun fucking times.
—SCREAMS. I HAVE A GILGAMESH.
—So this is the fan fiction I’ve been working on and I finally got around to finish the beginning. It’s both GinRan and HitsuMatsu told a series of both flashbacks and present day.
”Never said you couldn’t be, either, but I understand where you’re coming from. Although, in my opinion, even though it doesn’t matter much— you’re beautiful enough as is without additional preening, despite it being attractive in its own ways. Much as a warrior as you are, ya still carry the air of a lady— sword and all, seeing as that’s the air I’ve always gotten from you. But I’m just some teenage boy, so my word’s got zilch in the manner of weight.”
"—You’re words don’t mean zilch. It would be rude of me not to accept your compliment, or to disregard it because you’re ‘just some teenage boy’. Besides, I think that is by far one of the nicest compliments I’ve ever been paid — so thank you Ichigo. It means a lot to hear that from you." Leaning over she placed a quick kiss on his forehead before returning to her previous task. "Thank you."
"—Because. You work really hard to file your nails down so they’re even. You then wash them, then prepare them with a base coat. Let that dry. Then you put one coat on of the polish and sit and let that dry. Then the other hand and because I’m not ambidextrous, it’s…
“—Of course I could pay someone to do them for me but I hardly have the time or the ability to sneak away long enough to go get a manicure done. Its easier to do it myself - just far more stressful.” Giving a little huff of annoyance she leveled her gaze on him. “It is pointless…it will chip off within days but its nice to feel like a lady rather than to think of yourself only as a fighter.” She offered him a gentle smile as she rolled the nail polish bottle between her hands. “No one said you can’t be beautiful and deadly.”
Oh dear I may regret this but -
Reblog if you want me to write a mini-mini list (like 5 lines) about a couple of Bleach characters discovering your blog!
I can probably manage about 100 of these? If it gets reblogged more than that, I make no promises! In any event, I’ll do what I can throughout December!
”But…why? It makes about as much sense as someone getting pissed over toothpaste getting on their clothes. Just wash it off and start over.”
"—Because. You work really hard to file your nails down so they’re even. You then wash them, then prepare them with a base coat. Let that dry. Then you put one coat on of the polish and sit and let that dry. Then the other hand and because I’m not ambidextrous, it’s hard to paint my right hand and not look like it was done while I was in the middle of an earthquake. And then just as you think its done, you slip up and cause a gash in the polish…"
"Oooooo— pwetty! Nel wan’s s’hume ‘oo!" Quickly finds a sit upon the strawberry blonde’s lap, cuddling easily into a family’s embrace.
—With a small laugh she gave her a quick hug. “Alright, you will need to stay still and you can’t touch them till they’re dry, okay?” Grabs her base coat and lightly uses it on her nails.
